So Raq is officially disbanded?  I thought part of the reason they broke up was because this guy moved to NC and wanted to spend a lot of time with his family/newborn?  Or am I thinking of another Raq member from an old thread?

I\'m bummed to hear this. Matt\'s a great guy, I like his playing, and I really like the jazz influences he brings to the band. Well, I wish him the best of luck.

I\'m just in shock and utter disbelief.

creative differences is code for a million and one different reasons.

It stinks, but I really wouldn\'t put it on the same level as Ron or Jordan leaving the band.  Actually, I think that it would be more detrimental if Chris left.  His playing has brought the band to places it\'s never been.  Matt just brought a different style.  I\'m hoping that  Stoops has more of an organ feel to his style than say a synth sound.  Not that I mind the synth, but it seems like all the jams with synth and up with that disco sound (part of the reason I can\'t stand the biscuits).  I\'m sure that The Breakfast will land on their feet; they always do.

Joe - you may not agree with what I say, but seriously, this is a forum... People will express thoughts that differ from yours... That\'s the beauty of it...

Was Matt the only reason you liked the band?  I\'m sure he\'ll hook up with someone and you can follow that band.

As for Klouts comment about him being spaced out, I can understand where he\'s coming from.  The two times I talked to him, I had to explain what I was saying multiple times for him to catch on... Does that take away from his ability, no, but we also don\'t know what went on between the four of them, so let\'s take it for what it\'s worth.

Matt added a much needed level of jazz and musical professionalism to this band.  His songwriting was top notch, and he is an incredible human being.  I was at the Daniel St show the first time he sat in with the band during "Buquebus".  Only one of his keyboards worked, but damn if he didn\'t class up that song like nothing else.  He has musical intuition, which is the key component to improvisation, and let me tell you, not a lot of people have it.  The reason why we\'ve been getting such amazing Type II jams: Matt and Chris.  

I won\'t go to the Springfield show because I talked up this new lineup so fucking much and have to spend 10 minutes to explain how they arrived at this juncture.  Just when things finally started to settle, now this....

Looks like The Breakfast and the economy are heading in the same direction.

Bottom Line: Huge Fucking Mistake...
